26th January 2016Shauna Hoey dealt with:
Shauna has been really helpful with our German Shepherd who had quite bad lead aggression, pulling and growling when he saw other dogs on the lead. With the techniques that Shauna has taught me I no longer feel a sense of panic when I see another dog on a lead coming and have much better confidence and control. He has improved so much! Thank you!!

When Shauna visited Charlie changed in 2 hours. He is now more calm and relaxed. And he tend to listen more :) We've been doing the exercises she left us with and he is getting better.... It's amazing how small things can make big difference. Thank you Shauna!

What a difference. Within a few days of Shauna's visit it was like we had different dogs in the house. Still a few problems on the walk but Shauna came back for another session and gave us specific help with the walk. Improvement already but still work to do. This isn't a miracle cure but we now have the right tools to train ur dogs and they really do work. Thank you so much

29th December 2015Shauna Hoey dealt with:
I thought at one time that Jaspher was going to be one of those dogs that doesn't respond to training/commands. Having followed the advice and guidance of jasphers therapist over the last few weeks, he has proved me wrong. I feel far more confidant now when walking with him on the lead and my walks have been far more pleasurable. We still have a way to go with other issues but it has to be one step at a time it can't be rushed. I am prepared to do what it takes to help Jaspher overcome his problems.

4th December 2015Shauna Hoey dealt with:
Shauna visited us at home to offer support with puppy obedience skills. She was supportive, professional and her advice and guidance was invaluable. By the end of the session I had clear guidance about how to support my puppy and to reduce any unwanted behaviours to keep him safe. Having the 1:1 support meant that I was able to get constructive feedback and support to ensure that I was able to continue these skills afterwards. I have also been able to share them with family so that my puppy has consistency in his care.

After the first session we could see Cody was responding slowly and could see he was taking new words we have been teaching him. Can't wait to see a massive change in a few months. Thanks

Angela was brilliant explained exactly what was happening with our dog and the reasons behind it and how to deal with the issues we were having. Gave us the confidence to put into practice her training methods and we have seen a marked improvement in Bob’s behaviour over the last week.

28th February 2021Alex Fraser dealt with:
We have a different dog already. Alex was very knowledgeable. Lily was a terrible barker, jumping at people when we were out walking but very nervous around the house. I should mention she was a rescue dog so we have no idea what she has been through before. We went for a walk with Alex, on a new harness and where she would normally be pulling we learnt techniques to stop that. The biggy was seeing our neighbours. She barked, Alex controlled her, we stood and chatted. I had to keep checking she was still there, amazing.
With other training techniques Lily is a lot more chilled and even walks from one room to the other with more confidence.
She’s not perfect (what dog is) but we’re confident we’ll get there with her now and that helps her as well.
Absolutely recommend Alex Fraser.

27th February 2021David Jefferay dealt with:
Absolutely great. David was really informative and we are keeping up with the training every day. He has been no end of help to us - and this from dog owners of 40plus years. Just an aside. Our last dog was one of two brothers, both of whom came to live with us at 10 weeks of age. I found it much easier to train two dogs than one. But that could have something to do with me being MUCH older.????

26th February 2021Alex Fraser dealt with:
Having used various dog trainers, which havnt been the best experiences, I was slightly hesitant when first getting in touch with Alex.
First impressions were great and any questions I had were explained before I went forward with the booking the session. Alex was polite when entering my home and my dog Deizel was very pleased with the new visitor.
Having had a rough start in life Diezel needed quite a bit of reassurance when I first bought him home with me and strangers he can still sometimes be reserved but he was instantly up for his tummy to be scratched which was very surprising.
Diezel had a rough start in life before I found him. I began my own work with him but due to a personal decline in my health I began to struggle with keeping up with some things and he began running circles around me especially with walks. Deizel is so strong for his size and will easily drag me to whatever he would like to have a sniff of and that seems to be absolutely everything. Im sure hes just making up for lost time but even so it was becoming too much and began taking a toll on me. This meant I wasnt able to take him out as much as I would have liked to for both Diezel and my safety incase I accidently dropped the lead or me getting pulled over.
Alex showed me how to build up Diezels attentiveness towards me which will hopefully help with his concentration on walks as he is easily distraced and is aways on the go which is fine for him but not so much my shoulders and hands.
Whilst I explained everything Alex was very understanding and patient. I felt comfortable which is not something ive had in the past with dog trainers. I was able to go over everything that I would like help on and it was all answered and explained so I could implement the different techniques into daily life.
All in all I was extremely pleased with the help and advice. Deizel also had a great time eating lots of treats and getting all the extra attention.
I feel confident again in going forward and working with Diezel but even if I feel like things are becoming difficult I would be more than happy to get back in touch with Alex for any help that may be needed in the future.
If you are in areas that Alex covers and you need any help with your dog I am more than comfortable in saying the help you would get would be top class!
Deizel is a really lovely dog - but can jump as high as my head and has amazing strength which makes walking him extremely difficult. Although not fixed, he responded really well to the training we did and I’m confident with the ongoing training, he will make his Mum very proud.
Keep up the good work
